The HRD Ministry has started NIRF rankings back in 2015 where it ranks nine categories.
NIRF rankings 2020: The Ministry of Human Resource Development (HRD) on Thursday announcement that the Indian Institute of Management Ahmedabad (IIM-A) has emerged as India’s top college for management course and secured the first rank in the latest National Indian Ranking Framework (NIRF) 2020. The institute’s position has improved from last year as it lost the first place to IIM-Bangalore in NIRF 2019 rankings.
This year, IIM-Bangalore has been ranked second. However, it is to note that IIM-Bangalore is the only management college that has been selected from India in Financial Times’ Executive Education Ranking released earlier this month. The college is followed by IIM-Calcutta on third. Notably, in this year’s listing, six out of ten colleges for management are IIMs. Here is a complete list of NIRF rankings for top ten B-schools in India.
